Annually. Your eyes are a part of your body and deserve a regular visit to the doctor. An eye exam can help diagnose a lot of underlying medical issues NOT related to your eyes. This is why even someone with 20/20 vision should get an annual eye exam.
A lot of employers offer Vision plans along with Medical Insurances. Vision Insurance covers a portion of your eye exam as well as provides coverage towards glasses or contact lenses on an annual basis.
Medical insurance is used to diagnose, manage and treat eye related conditions like infections, diabetes, glaucoma etc. A patient with an existing eye disease/condition is likely to be seen under their Medical insurance and not Vision Insurance.

Generally speaking, Vision insurance either covers a portion of payment towards your glasses or contact lenses, but not both. In saying that, there are some insurance plans that offer coverage towards both.
You can usually use your insurance coverage once in 12 months. Some insurance plans renew within 12 months since the day of last use and some plans renew at the start of every year. Call us today so we can pull up your insurance.
Both doctors can treat medical conditions and provide prescriptions for your eyes.
The main difference is that Optometrists unlike Ophthalmologists do not conduct surgeries.
Much like your PCP doctor who you go to first to get a diagnosis of your disease and they refer you to a specialist. Optometrists diagnose/treat a condition and co-manage with Ophthalmologists to ensure the best patient care.
During an eye exam, an optometrist puts drops in your eyes to dilate your pupils to see the back of your eye. This process is called dilation.
The side effects of dilation are high sensitivity to light for a 3-4 hours. To avoid this, we recommend Retinal imaging, where a photo of the back of your eye is taken to achieve a similar result, without the side effects.
The other advantage of retinal imaging is the ability to have a photo record of your retina and track the progression of any medical issues like retinal tears, macular degeneration, diabetes etc.
